Hrafnsmál - "Ravensong" (a valkyrie and raven having a conversation)

Three Ravens - Edward Frederick Brewtnall 1885.

The Lady of the Vanir …when we recall that she chooses half of the battle-slain, when we reflect on her links to the Valkyries and consider her many parallels with Odin, we are lead to conclude that her marital abilities must be formidable…her message is simple, that women too can be strong, assertive, and full of fight. As Frey tells men that they can be lovers and fighters, Freyja says the same thing to women.”

Odin

✯ “In Norse mythology, Iðunn is a goddess associated with apples and youth. Iðunn is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, she is described as the wife of the skaldic god Bragi, and in the Prose Edda, also as a keeper of apples and granter of eternal youthfulness.”✯
